TRAVIS TRITT The Millennium Center; 101 W. 5 th St., Winston-Salem; 336.723.3700; mcenterevents.com; 8 p.m.; $35, $50
Grammy winner Travis Tritt make a rare appearance in the Triad at one of its most intimate venues, the Millennium Center in downtown Winston- Salem. The place has street cred galore, which should work just fine for the man who penned the songs “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’” and “Here’s A Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares).” Cowboy hats are optional.

JAMES GREGORY The Carolina Theatre; 310 S. Greene St., Greensboro; 336.333.2605; www.carolinatheatre.com; 8 p.m.; $25.50 James Gregory bills himself as “the funniest man in America.” Well, we can’t vouch for that, but we can say that his particular brand of homespun charm has influenced the likes of Ron “Tater Salad” White and Larry the Cable Guy. Gregory’s a bit older and classier, though. Let’s see if he’s allowed to smoke cigarettes on stage.
